Charlie Bird Explores The Amazon

LIVING CHANNEL – Wednesday 13 April, 11pm

On a truly epic journey, Charlie Bird crosses South America from ocean to ocean, tracing the course of the world’s mightiest river – the Amazon. En route he tells the story of the greatest wilderness on the planet and how more than ever before this region plays a pivotal role in the biggest challenges now facing human beings – global warming and environment change. The millions of square miles of Amazon rainforest are the most important real estate on earth – soaking up the gases spewed out by a world hell bent on consumption at all costs. After years of growing alarm, it is now recognised by most of the world’s leading thinkers that the environment will be the story of the 21st century.
